Key takeaways from the SMMT Connected 2024

Shoosmiths’ mobility partner, Ben Gardner, was a speaker at SMMT Connected 2024, hosted in London. Ben moderated a panel discussion focused on the remaining challenges to a safe and responsible commercial rollout of automated vehicles. 

The summit was aimed at addressing the latest advancements in connected and automated vehicle technology. The UK’s automotive sector leads the charge in this transformative revolution, making substantial investments in cutting-edge technologies. Collaborating closely with government and stakeholders, the industry aims to introduce these innovations onto roads once regulations allow.

Attended by over 400 senior representatives from the automotive, technology, insurance, telecoms, and infrastructure sectors, as well as government officials, the focus was on maintaining the UK’s position at the forefront of this technological revolution. By doing so, it aims to unlock the promised economic, societal, and environmental benefits.
